What is the new Samsung phone 2024?
It was no surprise that the Galaxy S24 was announced at the Galaxy Unpacked Event. This smartphone will have a heavy involvement with generative AI, after it took the world by storm at the end of 2022 with the introduction of ChatGPT.
Samsung announced they are working on adapting their Galaxy AI, with a combination of on-device and cloud based ai features which will be available on the S24 in some new features similar to live translation, expanding photos and tone in text. Besides the introduction of Galaxy AI into their smartphones, the only other major difference was that the smartphones screens will be 0.1” bigger in size compared to the previous models.
Of course, there will be a s24 ultra samsung being released, which will be more premium trading its aluminium frame for a titanium body similar to the iPhone 15 Pro and swapping a 10MP camera to a 50MP camera.
(The new samsung phone 2024 release date is currently available for pre-order on the official Samsung website, with the official release date of the phone being January 31st.)

What is Samsung Galaxy Ring?
At the end of the event, Samsung revealed another piece of tech which wasn’t expected by anyone. Further improvements will be made to Samsung Health with the arrival of the Galaxy Ring. Though we know little about this at the moment, it is believed to be a new piece of tech that will measure your health through your day to day life. We like how Samsung has created new ways to incorporate tech into our everyday lives, moving away from the smartwatches and focussing more on rings and other accessories.
The Galaxy Ring has no current release date, but we will make sure to provide regular updates on this tech when it’s revealed.
